MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH.
HALF WAY HOUSE!
The seats at Super Bowl were
still pretty much empty when the
party guests started showing up
at my daughter and son-in-law's
Only a few of those attending
are die hard football fans. But
most are die hard eating and
party fans! There was plenty of
good things to eat from cooked
specialties to finger foods. And
even though no one went
swimming, most of us found
ourselves jumping into a "pool."
Everyone enjoyed each
other's company and, now and
then, we even watched a little
of the game. As usual, the
commercial and Half Time got
a lot of attention.
But just about the time Half
Time was ending people started
gathering their coats and heading
for the door. One had to drive
back to New Jersey. A few had
kids that had to be up for school.
One had to go to work. And a
couple of us were just old and
tired. I guess that makes us a
Half Way House!
I can't believe our situation
was all that unique. Super Bowl
may be a great time to get families
together. But most families can't
hang in there at a party location
till nearly 11 o'clock at night and
still get home in time to be ready
for school or work the following
I've said, for years, that the
Super Bowl extravaganza should
be moved to Saturdays or, at least,
started much earlier on Sundays!
Hope somebody smart in the NFL
gets the message....and that all
your NEWS is good!
